Elisabeth Moss also stars in Metanoia with former Doctor Who Tenant (pictured) in the lead as the infamous Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing who advocated the medical use of LSD.
Robert Mullan is scheduled to commence shooting in January and Charlotte Arden and Harriet Hammond produce. Phin Glynn and Peter Dunphy are executive producers on the Gizmo Films and Bad Penny Productions film.
“The story of RD Laing in incredibly captivating,” said DDI president Jason Moring. “To have Michael come on board to compliment David and Elisabeth is a testament to the fascination of Laing himself.”
